Complete Liberty Podcast
Show that promotes total respect for self-ownership, property rights, and personal choice--amidst the authoritarian/obedience-oriented political and psychological memes in American culture (and elsewhere). Basically, governments and all they entail are the problem, not the solution. Voluntarism (or market anarchism, or anarcho-capitalism) and customary law principles, in accordance with reason and dignity, spell the solution.

In this episode I cover Chapter Four: Punitive Damages in the book Unconditional Parenting: Moving From Rewards And Punishments To Love And Reason by Alfie Kohn

The jail and prison system is a case study in punitive damages, wreaking havoc on individuals and our culture

Punishment is inimical to individual life and well-being; though it's used as a costly way to control others and "teach them a lesson," it can never foster respect and self-esteem

Government is simply a manifestation of the punishment model used by parents carried into the public realm; those in government have no property rights jurisdiction (they are neither property owners nor voluntarily chosen--i.e., hired--agents of property owners)

Punishment by parents directly undermines a loving relationship with children, sabotaging both trust and respect
